Doors’ Self-Produced 1968 Documentary Finally Set for Official Release

The trailer for the Doors' long-lost self-produced rock documentary 'Feast of Friends' has the effect of stripping away four decades of mythology, revealing the group as flesh-and-blood collaborators and friends -- rather than rock demigods.

One of the reasons why 'This is Spinal Tap' continues to resonate is because it's not only heavy metal groups on the downside of their career that experience real-life 'Spinal Tap' stories, but also bands that are trying to make a name for themselves on the road to classic rock immortality.

How Jim Morrison Inspired Matthew McConaughey’s ‘Dazed and Confused’ Catchphrase

For years now, the easiest way to do a Matthew McConaughey impression has been to imitate his 'Dazed and Confused' character, David Wooderson, by saying "Alright, alright, alright" in a goofy Southern drawl -- something McConaughey himself acknowledged when he uttered those magic words while picking up his Oscar and Golden Globe awards for 'Dallas Buyers Club.' And as it turns out, we have Doors frontman Jim Morrison to thank for all of it.

44 Years Ago: The Doors Release ‘Morrison Hotel’

The Doors had gotten sloppy, self-absorbed and a little off course by the time they released their fourth album, 'The Soft Parade,' in mid 1969. A few months later, when they returned to the studio to record the follow-up LP, 'Morrison Hotel,' they were leaner, tougher and more focused than they had been since their breakthrough 1967 debut.

47 Years Ago: The Doors’ Debut Album Released

When the Doors entered a Hollywood recording studio to make their debut album at the end of August 1966, they knew what they wanted. Months of serving as house band at the Whisky a Go Go had sharpened their playing and performing skills to the point where one member of the quartet could abruptly swerve toward a new direction and the others would follow without missing a beat.

46 Years Ago: Jim Morrison of the Doors Maced and Arrested in New Haven

One of the most mythologized and romanticized figures in rock history, Doors front man Jim Morrison possessed a deep-seated anti-authoritarian streak that repeatedly landed him in trouble.

There's no denying that Doors singer Jim Morrison was one of the most charismatic front men of his generation. Unfortunately he was one of the most troubled, too. The singer had a terrible alcohol problem that played a big role in his repeated arrests, including one on Nov. 11, 1969 in Arizona that resulted from Morrison and a friend drunkenly heckling a flight crew on a commercial airliner.
